Watching Them
Author: Pamela O'Brien


All around me
People are living
And I am just standing still

I watch them
As they progress
With a growing fear that I never will

Every person
That passes by
Has a future written on their face

I watch them
Because I know
That my expression is blank

I watch them
Living their lives
Because I can't get grip on mine

Deep inside me
I am dying
But my smile continues lying

I knew you would like that one, haven't heard from you in awhile :o)
What can I say about the last line-it is the one line I would choose to describe me if I had to narrow it down.
